He loved being involved in sports and the camaraderie that came with it. Glen was also a large part of the hockey communities his boys played in and built many close friendships while watching his boys play. Glenny’s greatest talent beyond sports was his incredible sense of humor and the ability to make conversation with anyone young or old.
